Poet Pam Ayres recalls learning about the harm to the animals at St.The Last Hedgehog by Pam Ayres, with illustrations by Alice Tait, is published by Picador on May 3, priced £. 9.

Poet Pam Ayres recalls learning about the harm to the animals at St Tiggywinkles. Hedgehogs have been poisoned, injured in traffic and mutilated by mowers. One of the first poems Pam performed warned people to be careful of them. Those hedgehogs, so poorly equipped to tackle modern life, gave me the idea for my book The Last Hedgehog. They made me determined to help, and I’ve learned there is plenty we can do, with even the smallest patch of space. A previous version of this article was illustrated with a photograph of a breed of domesticated hedgehog.

The book is awesome - Much better that the Giving tree. Shipping was prompt but the book was dirty inside. Cleaned up though but perhaps more care should be taken to check inside. Daughter absolutely LOVES this book.

Great book and illustration the same format that I read to my 30 year old as a child.

The previous reviewer summed it up nicely: cutting down a tree might be tempting, until you pause to think of all that it provides. This is not a militant book in any way--indeed there's little mention of the tree's contribution to the Earth. It's only seen from a utilitarian point of view. Environmentalists might want a bit more holistic message. Less environmentally inclined folks can still appreciate teaching their kids to think before using, and to appreciate nature.

The illustrations are quite nice and the story has just the right pace and flow. Suddenly one realizes what how lovely it is: that overlooked tree in the yard is a bounty of goodness.

This was one of my favorite books to read to my son when he was young. A father is going to cut down the chestnut tree in the yard and the children are excited because of all the fun they will have when the tree is cut down (climb on the tree, use the wood to build toys and a fort, etc.)Then they stop to think about what it would be like when the tree is gone (no shade to rest in after playing, no leaves to rake and play in, etc.)and they decide to keep the tree after all. The story shows children how to think through a decision and its consequences. The book is beautifully illustrated and written in rhyming verse.

This is a wonderfully illustrated yet simple book for children from toddler stage through about age 5 or 6, when kids start to read. The rhyme is simple but the message powerful (trees are valuable!). Our kids (now 10 and 12) loved this book and can still repeat some of its rhyme.
